Education & Events Volunteer


Water Vole Ben SimmondsWe are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer (or volunteers!) to help us deliver the schools and events elements of ‘Routes to the River Tone’, a community wildlife project based in Taunton. The project aims to reconnect people with the wildlife in their town and whoever fills this role will play an important part of helping us achieve that goal.

We need help to develop activities and resources that will be used in school education sessions and community events, assistance during school visits and help to deliver education sessions.  Also occasional assistance at community events - this might involve helping run an activity, conducting evaluation or taking photos.

Depending on your skills and interests there are opportunities to get involved with other aspects of the Routes to the River Tone project such as survey work and habitat management.
